Police in Alexandria are looking for people who want to participate in the Alexandria Police Citizens Academy.
The city says participants in the 10-week class will learn about patrol operations, gangs, crime prevention, crime scene investigations and criminal investigations.
The city says classes begin on March 8 and will be held at the department's headquarters.
The program is free but participants are being asked to volunteer for a minimum of 10 hours per year post graduation. That might include helping with parades or road races.
